I wonder why a package that the US Postal Service received in Southern California for delivery to me in Western Colorado would have gone to Billings, Montana on the day it was scheduled for delivery.

      So far, FedEx is the only carrier in that segment who hasn’t sent my things out wandering around the country for no good reason, and according to my clients who ship lots of stuff every day FedEx causes fewer damage claims. Not that they’ve been perfect, but they seem to screw up less often.

      I have to shut up now, as I’ve got that getting started feeling. 😀

      We used to get that when we received mail at home. The carrier didn’t really look at the mail, just followed her routine, and when her head got out of sync with her physical location everyone got the wrong mail. Usually it was by a block, so because we were the second house from the corner we’d get the mail that should have gone to the second house from the corner one block over, and our mail went to the second house from the corner one block further along the route.

      Sometimes I’m amazed that things go right as often as they do.

    I think I blogged about the big problem I had with FedEx a few years ago. Since I made the waves I did, I haven’t had any trouble. Hope I didn’t just curse myself!

      You’re probably okay. It’s my hypothesis that the universe doesn’t care enough about any one of us to screw us intentionally screw any one of us individually. I could be wrong. Or maybe I’m an agent provocateur convincing people to give temptation to fate.
